What is the difference between Docker commands: up, run and start?

We have up and start commands in docker-compose. The run command is in docker.

  • Up: We use this command to build, create, start or restart all the services in a docker-compose.yml file. It also attaches to containers for a service.This command can also start linked services.
  • Run: We use this command for adhoc requests. It just starts the service that we specifically want to start. We generally use it run specific tests or any administrative tasks.
  • Start: This command is used to start the container that were previously created but are not currently running. This command does not create new containers.
